Persuasion of Story-based Leadership

Connecting with people on a global scale happens through the art of storytelling.

However, the art of compelling storytelling must include these three components of your:

  1. Personal story
  2. Professional story
  3. Client stories

Imperatively, you must learn how to combine these three components when someone asks you what you do.

Direct interaction and consumer-driven marketing can increase effective persuasion by 74% with proper storytelling. Inspiring people to take action now on what you’re currently offering.

Communication With Direct Interaction

Currently, we live in a world with many distractions!

Consequently, direct interaction has massively changed in the last five years.

As a result, sales connection and communication have taken a big hit since email and texting became so popular. Not to mention, that text and email do not help people on the other end know how you feel, nor does it help make emotional connections.

Direct interaction now takes picking up the phone or face to face human interaction to make a connection.

Calling someone now is the best way for direct interaction, especially now that we make a face to face connection with facetime calls or online webinars. That is to say; people can interact live and see your smile and body language, making the Relationship real.

In addition to a direct interaction, consumer-driven marketing also needs to be tangible. In other words, sending out a heartfelt greeting card to someone’s mailbox is another means of creating connection and communication that directly affects emotions having a direct impact on persuasion in sales.

Hence, the by-product of all this are programs that build:

  • Relationships
  • Referral base
  • Brand loyalty
  • Repeat business

Art of Persuasion and the Human Connection

Above all, making a human connection now takes a special effort to go above and beyond text and email. Furthermore, in my book The Power of Human Connection, this type of persuasion through communication is spelled out for you.

Lastly, I wish to say “Thank You” for doing all your doing in bringing kindness to the world we live in! Tangible, direct interaction is what Sendoutcards is about, helping people act on promptings to reach out in kindness to people in their personal lives and businesses from all over the world, therefore, making a difference across the globe.

In other words, if you’re nice to people, great things happen especially when you focus on the first word Relationship because then the second-word Marketing takes care of itself organically.

Remember, what you send out is what you get back, and that’s what this blog is all about!

Take care,
